Mount Nemo in Burlington, Ontario is a conservation area owned and operated by Conservation Halton. It is popular with rock climbers in the Greater Toronto Area and the Golden Horseshoe, along with nearby Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area. Its five kilometers of hiking trails connect with the Bruce Trail.

Rock climbing[edit]

The rock type is limestone and most of the routes climbed are sport climbing. The sport climbing begins with a 5.9 but the majority of climbs fall in the 5.10 to 5.12 range. Due to its proximity to major urban areas, Mount Nemo is one of the most popular climbing destinations in Southwestern Ontario.

Conservation Halton has implemented a ban on top roping to protect the ancient cedars along the escarpment.


There are various cave systems running through the rock. It is a very popular activity at Mount Nemo and the entire Bruce Peninsula. The various caves offer great opportunities for enthusiasts from beginner to advanced skill sets.
